How fast thugs are back in the street stuns the Police chief
La Romana, Dominican Republic.- National Police chief Manuel Castro on Wednesday said he was astonished at “how fast offenders regain their freedom” despite government spending and the efforts on law enforcement.
Castro said thus far this year authorities have charged 72, 681 offenders in court including more than 20,000 for robberies and assaults, but crime “remains a plague” in the country still.
He regrets the fact that “Dominican Republic is becoming a violent society” since 51 percent of the deaths and injuries come from what he calls social conflicts.
The police chief spoke at a ceremony at East Region Police headquarters where he delivered nine vehicles and 13 motorcycles, to increase patrols across the province.
